We are not called to go with the flow and not rock the boat, but to speak the truth in all things.
Was not Jesus called the rock of offense? Every Mormon I've ever known are good moral family oriented people. Which is why I think people are drawn to their church. Paul says that to add to or subtract from the Bible is a no no. I know about the canonization and all it entailed and some find fault in the process. I accept what the early church designated as the Bible.
So, extra Biblical writings that are held up as Holy and Divinely inspired are a sign to me that a church's theology may
be veering off course and I take appropriate precautions.
If I had 3 prophecy's, I would judge the second and third by the first. If you did that with the bible, book of mormon and the pearl of great price, it would be very interesting. see here
